City of Tyler approves new sidewalks

(KLTV) -

Pedestrians will soon have new routes to stroll when the crews complete construction on sidewalks planned throughout the city.

Tyler City Council approved construction on the projects during its' Wednesday meeting.

The project will be funded using the Texas Department of Transportation Enhancement Grant Sidewalk Project. The city was awarded the grant in August 2013 and will receive a maximum of $1,648,322 in federal funds. The grant will allow reimburse the city for 80 percent of the construction cost for the sidewalks.

The proposal is for the design of 5-foot wide American with Disabilities Act compliant sidewalks and the locations were selected using the Pedestrian Master Plan published by the Metropolitan Planning Organization in 2010.

“The project includes approximately 7.2 miles of sidewalk throughout the City of Tyler that are greatly needed,” said City Engineer Carter Delleney.

Streets scheduled to undergo construction are: Mockingbird Lane, from South Peach Avenue to Broadway Avenue; Northwest Loop 323, from Van Highway to west Erwin Street; Garden Valley Road, from Bradley Avenue to north Glenwood Boulevard; west Gentry Parkway, from Van Highway to north Border Avenue; south Beckham Avenue, from east Houston Street to Troup Highway; and east 5th Street, from south Beckham Avenue to south Clayton Avenue.
